The building is oldest (1700!) but we have just renewed to be able to provide more facilities to our guest.

Bathroom is so so small. There is a construction above the hostel which is noisy in the morning.
Staff is very nice and helpful. The hostel is closed to the fresh market where you can find fresh cooked food, mushroom, and lunch. The market is very recommended. Room is large and quiet.
the walls are thin, there was a baby somewhere in the building that cried every night...small shared bathroom.
convenient location. very close to train station and the market. owner was nice. room was clean. laundromat right beside in the next building
The hotel owner, Lorenzo, was so helpful. He catered to all our needs Brilliant location, on a beautiful pedestrian street, 5 minutes from the Duomo.
Limited check in times of 11:00 - 15:00 which we only found out after we booked. They did acommodate us for a 16:30 check in. Tiny elevator. Lorenzo is very sweet and tries to helpful but basics like a decent map of the city are not available and the taxi that he booked for us to the airport didn't arrive.
Clean and good size bedroom and bathroom. Location was central
Walking distance to all main sites. Lots of places to eat & drink nearby, including mercato centrale. Staff really friendly & helpful
There was a bad smell at the front door for two days but then it disappeared. The most annoying thing was the sound of unlocking and locking of the doors at night. If the management modernizes the locks in the future it would be a huge plus. Overall the hotel was a great choice for us.
Locayion is very close to both train station, san lorenzo market and of course Duomo. Lorenzo at the reception was very helpful and kind. He answered all our questions. His reccomndations about restaurants were great. He even gave us his umbrella on a rainy day. Casa Billi is very lucky for having such a great employee. The wifi was good, axessable all the time. They cleaned our room every morning. The elevator is a huge plus after walking all over Florence.
I believe that the owners are a young couple with a baby - some crying heard throughout the day but generally inaudible when my door was closed.
Very near Stazione di Santa Maria Novella; excellent Wi-Fi reception
lack of reception desk
room were clean and spacious
Wifi doesn't reach everywhere. The walls are thin and other guests are noisy (puking college students, etc.). There is no reception after 5pm or so, so if there are problems you have to try to hunt them down. But, you get what you pay for and largely our experience was very positive.
The location is convenient to the center and the train station. The rooms are large and the beds were comfortable.
Location and helpfulness of staff
As with any budget hotel especially in Florence it was a little noisy with voices, the large echoey buildings arent great acoustically but its nothing a pair of ear plugs can't solve. On the plus side there was absolutely no street or traffic noise which was a huge bonus and in my experience is a rare treat in Italy.
Bed was super comfy, in Italy the beds are usually very hard but this was large and comfortable. The room was spacious and the en suite was clean and well stocked with a good shower and hair dryer. The location was a 5 minute walk from the station and a minute walk to the Medici Chapel. It's not my favourite area of Florence but for centrallocation purposes its excellent for sight seeing. You are also close up the market area and to numerous bars and restaurants. The Duomo is a 3 minute walk away. Lorenzo who runs Casa Billi is a charming, friendly and informative host. Note Casa Billi doesn't have a 24 hour manned reception, but communicating with Lorenzo via email is quick and easy. You must contact him in advance to alert him to your arrival time. As a regular visitor to Florence I have stayed in many budget hotels, I would recommend Casa Billi highly to the budget solo, couple or group traveller.
Overall condition of the guesthouse is a rather old.
